Ever since the housing crash of 2008, home builders and renovation companies nationwide have put on a brave face. Some managed to weather the storm, while others quietly faded into inexistence. With the apparent resurgence in the housing market back on the rise (thank goodness), builders face a new issue – lack of inventory and, in some cases, shortages of land on which to build. While new home builders struggle to keep up with demands from a new generation of home buyers, renovation companies are experiencing higher levels of confidence as projects roll in from existing home owners, sellers wishing to bring their properties up-to-date for potential buyers, and home buyers who could see the potential in an ugly duckling property.
According to the most recent National Home Builders Association’s Remodeling Market Index (RMI) – a measure of current remodeling activity and future market indicators such as calls for bids, appointments for proposals, work committed for the next three months and backlog of remodeling jobs – confidence levels are at their highest since the first quarter of 2004! Minor additions & alterations (projects under $25,000) in owner-occupied properties are leading the way, with major additions & alterations and maintenance & repair projects following closely behind. The key future market indicator is calls for bids showing the promise of work from potential clients, as well as work committed for the next three months in owner-occupied properties.
